      Today I made an appearance downtown
      I am an expert witness, because I say I am
      And I said, gentleman, and I use that word loosely
      I will testify for you
      I'm a gun for hire, I'm a saint, I'm a liar
      Because there are no facts, there is no truth
      Just data to be manipulated

      I can get any result you like
      What's it worth to ya?

        Note, I'm not supporting going after a pol's kids.

        I'm saying it's hypocritical to laugh at one, whilst expressing poutrage over the other. Which presumably many of these keyboard kommandos are doing, and are justifying it by saying, "Yeah, well libs did it, too!"

        Freepers and their ilk are famous for this - they spent 8 years making racist jokes about the Obama daughters, which they justified by saying that the taxpayers were paying for them to live in the White House and take vacations with their parents, so therefore they are public figures.

          There is still a potential upside to Trump's inevitable comeuppance. If, when he crashes and burns, he lays waste to the politics of hatred and hypocrisy that he personifies so well. But we have to be somewhat careful to contain the flames to the Party and culture that has promoted him. (i.e. He will make blatant lies, bigotry, etc. recognizable and repugnant in a national politician for a generation)
          I guess what I meant is, he makes "the right thing" abundantly clear to us all by demonstrating the opposite extreme. I'm confident he will fail spectacularly if good people stay the course of resistance.
          Note that I'm quite conservative philosophically and even I can see this... more and more are getting on board; we just can't stand for it. I'm hoping that within a few months (say, by the time of impeachment) even his voters will disavow their votes. Welcome them aboard. Be nice.
          tl/dr The democrat party won the election.

                I think much of Fade's point is that we all lost.

                    Something tells me it was a mistake to bring up "the high road" with this group of Democrats...

Especially given all the promises to stop providing defense for other countries and whatnot. If we're withdrawing from the world, why increase the standing army?
                        Actually, at face value, that would be THE reason to increase the standing army/etc. Hunker down and basically tell anyone that is thinking of invading to give a second thought to that action.
